This study examines the possibility of replacing an outdated, analog video recording system to a digital counterpart. It is key that the video and audio signals remain synchronized, generator locked and time stamped.
It is up to nine different video sources and a number of audio sources to be recorded and treated in such a manner which enables synchronized playback. The different video sources do not always follow a universal standard, and differ from format as well as resolution.
This study aims to compare a number of state of the art commercial of the shelf solutions with proprietary hardware. Great emphasis is placed on giving a functional view over the system features and to evaluate different compression methods.
The report also discusses different transmission, storage and playback options. The report culminates in a series of proposed solutions to sub problems which are solved and treated separately, leading to a final proposal from the author. The final draft set how well the system meets pre-set requirements to price.
